158 Stoke Newington High Street, London N16 7JL
The shop window of Rouge, a witty splash of bright textiles, cool ceramics and colourful, hand-painted wooden furniture, cuts quite a dash among the inner-city bustle of Stoke Newington High Street. Inside is a treasure trove: most items are imported from China or Tibet, and each one is hand-chosen for its beauty, with a successful combination of vintage and modern that is totally now. You’ll find everything from reproduction 1920s posters to beautifully painted bedside tables, jade jewellery to cheery kids’ booties, funky lanterns to retro vacuum flasks. Whether you’re after an inexpensive gift for a friend, or aiming to revamp your home entirely, this colourful little place is an absolute gem.
